September 17, 2012

By Karen Fox, ADA News staff

San Francisco—There are special experiences in store for ADA members this year at Annual Session.

Visit the ADA Welcome Center to find out what the ADA is doing for members, and leave armed with tools to benefit your practice, a professional portrait and maybe even a raffle prize.

A variety of member-centered services take place at the Welcome Center, including:

• The ADA Find-a-Dentist Photo Studio: Find-a-Dentist on Mouth Healthy helps members market their practices by providing practice information and other details online. Have a professional portrait taken at the Photo Studio, update your Find-a-Dentist profile and take your portrait home on a flash drive.

• Take a tour of Mouth Healthy, the ADA’s new consumer-oriented website. See how the site can be used to educate patients on prevention, care and treatment; and view oral health information by life stages, from pregnancy and babies through adults over 60—in English and Spanish.
